FT. RICHARDSON, Alaska, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- TriWest Healthcare Alliance will present $12,000 to the Alaska National Guard Officer's Auxiliary - Friends of the Guard & Reserve fund, which will help support the needs of the more than 5,000 Alaska Service members and their families.

Larry Sutterer, market vice president for the Alaska area at TriWest, will present the check to the Adjutant General of the Alaska National Guard, Maj. Gen. Craig E. Campbell, at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at the National Guard Armory at Ft. Richardson, room B-208. Jan Myers, director of the Friends of the Guard & Reserve fund is also expected to attend.

"As members of civilian communities with limited access to or from rural areas throughout Alaska, many National Guard families don't have the support available at military bases like Ft. Richardson or Elmendorf Air Force Base," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. "TriWest is making the contribution with the hope that we can help to bridge that gap for Alaska's Guard families."

Since 2001, more than 2,143 members of Alaska's National Guard have been mobilized in support of the Global War on Terror. Most recently, members of the 297th Brigade Support Battalion were deployed to Kuwait.

"TriWest continues to be a steady partner that recognizes the realities of military service and its impact on our families," Maj. Gen. Campbell said. "We are grateful to TriWest for this contribution, which can help make life easier to bear for Guard members and their families."

TriWest's contribution is part of its "Giving to the Guard" campaign, in which it is providing support to National Guard units throughout its 21-state west region.
